If the team needs a game-winning shot, who would you rank as the top 5 options on the team in clutchness?

Today's game was incredible.

Very tough question.  If we are talking clutch shooting in desperation time then Rozier is #1, followed by Morris.  Both of them have a knack for making difficult shots at the end of the game.  Tatum is also clutch but most of his plays come within the flow of the game, which is certainly not a bad thing.  We just haven't seen Tatum in many ISO situations to close out games yet.

As an overall player in a tight game I would go with Al Horford as the most clutch.  Al can make big shots, run the offense, and anchor the defense at the same time.  It's not always flashy but his impact in tight games is "clutch" IMO.

Today there were 5 guys with 19 points or more. Every single one of them is a killer.

It's so true.  We saw big performances by most of these guys all season long.  During the game I remember telling my friend that I was comfortable with any one of the 5 taking the last shot in the 4th quarter.

It feels like Smart is always coming up with big plays when it matters the most and obviously Kyrie has a pretty stellar track record for hitting big shots. Al Horford, too.

 Rozier and Morris have been incredibly impressive in the clutch this season. Those 5 jump to mind and I'd probably rank them in that order.
1957, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1974, 1976, 1981, 1984, 1986, 2008, 2018

We must have the most clutch team in the league, right? Kyrie is known as possibly the most clutch player in the league and he's not even playing. I don't think Hayward exactly has a 'Paul George' reputation either.

I was going to say that I was a little uncertain about Jaylen, but he literally just hit a step back three at the buzzer to win the game like a week ago. His focus and determination make me think that he will only get better in this area.

Everybody else mentioned - Terry, Horford, Smart, Horford, Tatum - all totally amazing clutch players. That is a total of 8 players who have a killer mentality. I think it is clear the types of players Ainge and Stevens target.

Edit: Heck, I even forgot about Morris. That's 9 right there!

1- Kyrie
2- Rozier
3- Hayward
4- Horford
5- Tatum
6- Morris
7- Smart
8- Brown
